    Read the book and you will see.

    The real George Jung was very different, a big strong guy who threw a Mexican police chief down a staircase. Not a little pissant like Johnny Depp. The character Pee-wee Herman played was not a flamer, he was actually an ex Marine commando who trained special forces in Vietnam.

    The guy called "Diego" in the movie is actually Carlos Lehder. A very famous cartel leader who was extremely close to Pablo Escobar.

    The part with him never having seen his daughter again was complete BS and made up. He actually got out of jail and went back to running marijuana from Mexico.

    They also cut out some of the funniest stories. Like George cutting down a bunch of power lines so his plane could safely land on the highway in Mexico. And could not figure out later why the power in half the city was out that night.

    I understand that when it comes to true stories it is hard for a movie to match the book. However, Blow the movie could have been significantly better than it was.

    Black Mask, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Public Enemies = 3 more movies where Johnny Depp sucked playing a real person.

    Travolta has some good rolls beyond Pulp Fiction. He was good playing Bill Clinton:



    He was funny in Get Shorty

    He was good in White Man's Burden



    Chains of Gold was underappreciated




    Now that I look at it Travolta is a no brainer for me over a pile of trash like Johnny Depp.

    We'll find out... maybe Sparrow beats women in the new Pirates.

    Thought of a good one... Depp beats women with his hand. Travolta beats other guys asses with his dick.
